€10,000 for people who go carless for five years proposed by PN
Feb 27 2022 Share

As part of their electoral campaign, the Nationalist Party has pledged to pay drivers €10,000 if they sell their car and go carless for the next five years. 

A proposal which intends to reduce cars off Maltese roads and address the island’s notorious traffic problems, the payment would be spread over five years for anyone choosing to find alternative routes.

People who make use of this measure must of course not acquire another vehicle during that five year period. 

This proposal accompanies others such as the proposal to build underground tunnels and trams to battle traffic, as well as investing in a system which informs drivers of traffic accidents in advance, launching a national programme to encourage bicycle use and other public transport incentives.
